This discussion in itself has some interest; however it risks being, as
it is customary with this particular topic, too much heated.  I would
like to comment, but unfortunately at this moment I am not in a position
to discuss with a pace as fast as you do; therefore I will just refrain
myself from commenting, but for what follows.

This is very good news, and shows that RMS can listen to practical

I would like to make it clear that I do not see the need to fork
anything, manual included.  I'm happy with how AUCTeX is being developed
and with how David is doing as the AUCTeX maintainer.  I support AUCTeX
being a GNU project.  I shall not follow any fork: Debian will continue
to include upstream AUCTeX, at least for what depends on me and with the
current situation.

Thanks, Davide
